Stardawg was produced by crossing Chemdawg #4 and Tres Dawg, resulting in a potent sativa strain. This strain is considered highly psychoactive, to the extent that it can take you on a psychedelic trip. Stardawg has many phenotypes which include Corey Haim, Illuminati, Guava, and Kate Upton.
Appearance and Flavor
Stardawg grows to an average height with most of its plant ranging from four to six feet tall. The plants grow upright, and the buds grow tightly together on the stems. The leaves of the plant can easily be recognized from their healthy darker green color filled with yellow and orange pistils. The entire plant is covered with white THC rich trichomes, illustrating the potency of the plant.
Stardawg has a rich flavor profile. Its aroma is similar to diesel. This is a similar fragrance to its parent strain Chemdawg which also has a sweet and sour taste. You will also find spicy and sweet undertones in the flavor profile of this strain.
The reason for the rich flavor profile of Stardawg is due to its high levels of terpenes like Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Limonene.
Stardawg seeds are amongst the hardest to grow and require professional and highly experienced growers. This strain can be grown using a greenhouse, indoor, or outdoor.
Those who like growing indoors should preferably use a large grow tent which can contain plants up to six feet tall. The grow tent should be built with reflective lining within it to allow light to move freely and help to bring the necessary photosynthesis needed by your plants. Growers can also use a humidity monitor, and exhaust system with a fan, and to filter out pungent air and keep the grow room clean. After a period of 10 weeks, you can induce your plants to start flowering by exposing them to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark. After the flowering period, growers should expect a yield of about 3 ounces per meter squared. This is not a massive yield when compared to other strains but keep in mind that this is a very difficult strain to grow.
Growing this sativa strain using a greenhouse is more beneficial than indoor growing. You get to use the natural soil like outdoor growing, but this time you have control over the temperature and humidity. Furthermore, you can highly benefit from the natural sunlight. Growing your cannabis using Greenhouse growing gives you a lot of advantages. Greenhouse growers of Stardawg should expect a yield of about 3 ounces per plant.
Growing Stardawg outdoors results in a stronger plant due to the natural environment. The plant becomes naturally resistant to elements such as pests, animals, and bacteria due to its natural environment. Growing this strain outdoors results in high amounts of trichomes, cannabinoids, and a huge terpene profile which play a role in fighting against threats presented by the natural, outdoor environment. Stardawg cannabis plants are rich in phytonutrients. Outdoor growers should expect a yield of about 3 ounces per plant, like the yields from other grow methods.
